I LOVE Thanksgiving! My kids used to say that they didn’t know which was their favorite holiday – Thanksgiving or Christmas. Thanksgiving’s emphasis on gratitude, family, and special meal memories is priceless.
There are lots of amazing activities online that can make the holiday even more fun in the days leading up to it. Here are some Montessori-inspired Thanksgiving activities that can work well at home or school:
Montessori Print Shop has inexpensive Thanksgiving printables.
Montessori for Everyone has free Thanksgiving Matching Cards.
Montessori Workjobs has Turkey Nomenclature Free 3-Part Cards and Book
UPDATE: You’ll find links to all my Thanksgiving posts here: Montessori-Inspired Thanksgiving Ideas.
Little Wonders’ Days has a Thanksgiving story bracelet. It uses a free printable from My Montessori Journey. You can see other examples of Thanksgiving bracelets at Just Reed and Ramblings of a Crazy Woman.
